So, long story short I have been doing a ton of research on my grandfather who passed away in 1993. He served in the pacific in WW2 and as a WW2 nerd, his service is very interesting to me. I come to find out, that none of his children (including my mother) have ever really dug into what he did and where he served, so as one of the younger grandchildren and as a WW2 enthusiast, I decided to take this task on. I started with his discharge papers, naturally, which my grandmother still has. Should be easy with that right? No..... Unfortunately, I don't believe that the unit listed on his discharge papers is the unit he served with in WW2 overseas. (3705th AAFBU which is based out of Lowry field in Colorado) I believe the 3705th was just the unit he was discharged from after he returned to the US for 4 months before the war ended. I also have his army serial number, but chances are his file was lost in the archives fire because nothing comes up when I search it through the archives online. He was awarded the Asiatic Theater Campaign ribbon with 3 bronze stars for each of the campaigns he was in. The campaigns include the Central Pacific Campaign, Eastern Mandates Campaign and Western Pacific Campaign. He was a 533 demolition specialist but mainly worked on building airfields as an engineer and doing mechanic work on trucks and whatnot as he comes from a farming family and worked on machinery before the war (this info was on documents provided to him to give to the VA after the war, it states what he did for the Army). He was trained at Schofield Barracks and he had stated to family before he died that he was on Makin Atoll and Saipan but that's all the info I have. I have, through a lot of reading and painstaking internet searching, started to narrow down generally what units he could have been in. I cant find very much info on the VII Air Force Service Command (which I think his unit served under) nor any websites/sources for where all engineer (aviation or not) units were based in central pacific via command posts, air bases and depots. Given that he was on Makin and Saipan and left from Hawaii, it had to be connected to the 7th air force somehow and the 804th aviation engineering battalion seems to be right in line with his service but I still cant be sure. So the journey continues for now. I am reaching out as I am having trouble understanding the information listed with the General Orders in the campaign section of the discharge papers and I am hoping that someone with better knowledge on this can either explain it to me or get me with a source so I can do the reading. The orders state the following and I have included a picture of that section from his discharge papers: Central Pacific Par 3 GO 6 Hq Sept 44 Eastern Mandates GO 2 Feb 45 Western Pacific Affidavit July 45 Not sure what "Par" "Hq" or "Affidavit" refer to and cant find the general orders. Any information helps. Thanks!
